Does you ISP count uploads?
Do you use a Torrent client?
Do you upload files to any sites?

I upload to GrabCAD regularly. In fact, I uploaded there just yesterday, a file size of 12Mb. Total bandwidth used in that time 77Mb which is crazy.

More puzzling is that my wife now has the exact same problem and she does very little internet stuff. She has been having this problem now for 2 weeks, me for a month. This coincides with each of us getting the latest Avira so maybe...

On the other hand it could be a virus but I haven't the faintest idea how to start looking for it. Avira doesn't give any warnings...

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

If your not uploading much I would suggest giving NetLimiter - The Ultimate Bandwidth Shaper a try, it might give you an idea. Just make sure it loads with Windows and is running then check it every couple of days when you get off the internet to see what has been using the data.
